I never had a problem with Finn, or how he suddenly became a killer. He was always very sweet, a good kid, and the pacifist. But he was fine as long as he could make sure that Clarke stayed alive, and Raven as well. Bellamy was able to establish himself as a leader, and not in a good way, and Clarke did as well, due to her medical knowledge. Bellamy and Clarke started to become a team, and it worked well, as the fact that they could not agree and fought in the beginning, is what has eventually made them become great leaders. They all became violent, killed people, in order to survive, but Finn was not as strong as the two of them and Raven. He snapped when he saw the watch,i.e.. a psychotic break, and he killed 18 people, because he wanted to make sure Clarke was safe. Some people get stronger and stronger in a fight for survival, and some people become stronger, but to a point, which is why he was triggered by the watch. He even said, that she was all he cared about, and he really wasn't looking for their friends. The fact that he broke, shot the guy in the head, proved he was unstable, as his violent behavior kept escalating, until he saw Clarke. It would have been more interesting to explore his character, as it seems as if loving someone and caring for them, is how he kept himself alive, ie. was able to process the trauma of their violent life on the ground. Perhaps the writers could have drawn his story out, and we could have spent more time watching him destabilize, but this still worked for me.
First great episode, and I would love the idea of Laurel becoming a darker character. She can still love her sister and Oliver, because I like the whole blackmailing thing she's got going on. I loved that move of Oliver rolling over the railing with Felicity, it was very cool. But she's the only one who cannot protect herself, and I fear for her safety. My predictions for the finale are Thea will die, I know she was kidnapped, but I throw it out there. Oliver killed Slade on the island because he "killed" Sara. Remember she asked Oliver what happened to Slade? I think the death of Sara, will be the one on the island, not as Black Canary.
King Henry has syphilis, an STD. Catherine said he has black water, ie. urine, and it was a very frequent mode of death, particularly in the waning days of the Roman Empire. All that sex, was causing it to become an epidemic. It causes insanity, and a god complex, paranoia amongst other things. King Henry will die, but how long that will take? I am not a Dr, but it can take a while. And when you are a powerful man like the King? It can lead to almost killing loved ones, ie.Bash, threatening powerful people around him, even Catherine, as in the end,he is King. it can lead to wars, even purges, and many crazy, insane rulers over the centuries became that way due to syphilis. But Kenna most likely has it, and she will give it to Bash, unless they use some kind of condom, which I don't think existed? But the King can be murdered, and the all of the power grabbing, and intrigue that will happen as a result of that act. So, It can also be great fun for these period dramas, but this is not following history, and who cares! We can watch the Tudors for the more serous stuff. always
